We came across this restaurant last week while staying in Newcastle for a few days.it was a great find and I'm glad we booked for the Tuesday night as it was packed out. Under the management of Seamus , everything was very good. The waiting staff were most attentive , the food was absolutely delicious and presented well.My husband and I went for the 3 course early - bird menu and we were presented with a real treat.We will be back for the dining experience and wish other restaurants would give them a visit to see how it SHOULD be done !!! Thanks to the whole Vanilla team.
